Belichick Conference Call
Bill Belichick's postgame conference call is still ongoing.
* "There were some players who did some things and helped themselves (Thursday night). We have personnel meetings later on tonight where we'll go over that."
Belichcik said he wouldn't go into players who stepped forward on a "case-by-case basis" but he mentioned guys in the kicking game as having made an impression.
*Belichick wouldn't comment on whether the players who didn't dress Thursday (Christian Fauria, forinstance) were safely on the team.
* Asked about Tully Banta-Cain who left with an injury, Belichick said TBC is "Good. I think everybody's doing OK."
* In response to a question about whether a player who was traded for (ex. Duane Starks) may have more of a chance to make the team based on what the team gave up to get him than a street free agent, Belichick said, "Once the players walk onto field at the start of training camp, it doesn't matter if he played Division One or Division 6 (college football) or if he's played in 12 Pro Bowls. A player's performance is based on what he does in this system on the football field. (Status) has zero or almost zero impact.
